: COMEDY TONIGHT

A season of comedy films with the great laughter-makers
Tonight:
SPENCER TRACY in Father's Little Dividend with ELIZABETH TAYLOR
JOAN BENNETT and Don Taylor , Billie Burke
Screenplay by ALBERT HACKETT and FRANCES GOODRICH
Produced by Pandro S. Berman
Directed by Vincente Minelli
Spencer Tracy as father of the bride suffers further hilarious humiliation in the process of becoming a grandfather. He finds it difficult to separate the image of being a grandparent from that of age and senility, and his life is further complicated by rivalry with the paternal grandparents-to-be. And when the ' happy event' happens, the infant seems to take an instant dislike to him.

: THE GREAT FISH MUDDLE

Tuesday's Documentary
A film about an industry that didn't want to change
Many trawlers are old-fashioned
Trawlermen work in conditions illegal on land
The industry spends over £ 100,000,000 a year on foreign fish
It pulps British fish into cattle food
Over 400 protection societies defend the status quo
... and 1968 has been a doleful year. Trawlers lost at sea, trawlers laid up, trawlermen laid off. Fishing is-in every sense-in deep water
Produced and narrated by Roger Mills

: CONTRASTS

A series of music and arts features
THE GENTLE ART
OF MAKING ENEMIES
Whistler v. Ruskin 1878
I have seen, and heard, much of cockney impudence before now; but never expected to hear a coxcomb ask two hundred guineas for flinging a pot of paint in the public's face
John Ruskin wrote this in 1877 of the avant-garde paintings of James McNeill Whistler. Ruskin was the art pundit of his time-perhaps of all times. And when Whistler took him to law over his remarks both men hoped the clash would be a major landmark in the history of art. Things did not turn out quite as they expected.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
